Re: change tool fast and back

I'm not sure if this is what you want, but certain functions have a keyboard shortcut you can assign to toggle the function on and off. For example, Toggle CutBrush is keyboard shortcut B . So if you need to activate the cut brush to select and cut something to a custom brush , just press B and the ...

Re: Recommendations for Cintiq alternatives ?

I'm watching this thread with interest, since I also have a 10-year-old Cintiq 21UX and in all likelihood my next computer will be a Mac. I have largely moved into doing my rough work and tiedowns on the iPad in RoughAnimator (and more recently Callipeg), and exporting to TVP or Blender for ink/pai...

Re: An Addition To Line Smoothing and/or Guides

Well, I thought maybe ... ? You can see the Line Smoothing in Average (Points) mode , with Catch Up enabled almost manage to do this . The behavior looks similar , but it's not as precise. It looks like it is trying to "snap" the ends of the stroke together, but it misses more often or if it does sn...

Re: Never break instance when using transform tool

Or would it maybe be possible to make an action that turns the auto break function off every time I select the transform tool, and when I grab another tool, it automatically toggles "on" again? I'm not sure how to create that sort of action, but you could assign a keyboard shortcut to Toggle Auto B...

An Addition To Line Smoothing and/or Guides

In Autodesk Sketchbook Pro they have a function called " Predictive Stroke ". This Predictive Stroke function is especially useful for drawing freehand Circles/Ovals/Ellipses . Sometimes even when you try to be very accurate drawing a freehand circle or ellipse you will miss connecting the end of th...

Re: Line Smoothing - deactivate smoothing when using Eraser

Bump. Is this feature request still doable? TVPaint Developers : The request is that the Line Smoothing would be automatically disabled when using Eraser and then enabled when using brush. Is this possible ? Disabling Line Smoothing when activating Eraser should be doable, yes. Re-enabling (if it wa...

Re: Recommendations for Cintiq alternatives ?

Thank you for the detailed response, Jet. This kind of professional shop talk is exactly what I was hoping for in starting this topic. If I may, I would recommend looking at a screenless tablet setup as another alternative. I do have an Intuos Pro (Medium) that I have occasionally used for digital p...

Re: clone stamp

At first I was wondering how this Clone Stamp custom brush is different than the built-in "Panto" mode ? But one thing I like about this Clone Stamp tool is that the preview of the brush is more clearly defined. Other than that it seems to function the same as the Panto mode. I notice that the defau...

Re: remember ligth table "out of peg" change

Hi. I think it would be useful the possibility of remember the "out of peg" change. so you can reset and get back easily I like your suggestion to have Remember Peg and Apply Peg as menu items under Options, but there does already exist a way to save out-of-pegs positions, in the Bin . So, for exam...

Re: Disable ctrl+draw

When ctrl is held while drawing, the timeline plays and brushstrokes will be made over many frames over time. Is there a way to disable this? I frequently trigger it accidentally while drawing and using ctrl+ shortcuts. Sometimes I don't notice when it happens then I manually have to erase the extr...

Re: Recommendations for Cintiq alternatives ?

In researching it and reading reviews one problem I've read about with the XP-Pen tablet is that the surface tends to scratch more easily than a Wacom Cintiq with it's hard etched glass surface. I've read that the top-of-the-line Huion tablets have etched glass surface that resists scratches. (like ...
